|Assassin's Creed Unity|

|DC Universe Online|
|1:28:54||Have you had any particularly good or bad experiences with companion apps?||Lou Lohman||Yes, recently, bad. I went to go use the (Xbone) companion app for AC: BF recently, and found that I could not get it to connect properly to my Xbox. I own the game on PC and it works perfectly with that, but when I try to use it with my Xbox, it gives me some stupid connection error, "Connection Impossible" - which is wrong, because I actually got it to work for about 5 minutes at one point. It was apparently a common issue when it first released, having to do with the number of friends in your list, but that's not my problem, thus I have no solution for it.|
|1:30:23||Mat Elfring||No. Bump n Jump doesnt need a companion app|
The Dead Rising companion app was a waste of time. I spent more time staring at my tablet trying to figure out how the hell to use it.
However, I like the MK and Injustice companion apps because you can unlock skins in the platform game. That's pretty rad and the mobile game is fun to play while I drop a Bump N Jump. Wait, does that count as a companion app?
|1:31:25||Goat||Fable can skip companion apps. The Anniversary one was a total shit, and a useless joke.|
|1:31:41||Songbird||Dear Technetronicorn, Fallon Flynn, and ?|
Mailbag Answer - Uhhhhhh…….. unfortunately, to my knowledge I've played extremely few games which have companion apps, but I've never used them because I either don't own the needed device or it's not up to snuff to even consider using them.
1.) With more games slowly adding features to devices outside their original product do you think gaming companies could ever convince those who make those devices to either reduce their prices or have discounts; it's annoying to own a console, but can't use the apps for the games because I bought a console.
2.) Now for an about face. With Mobile devices becoming more of a threat why do they keep supporting them with apps?
3.) Just curious, do you know of anyone who ever owned any Playstation Phone?
4.) What's the most you've or anyone else you know ever spent in a companion app?
